Abstract: myopia surgery is not suitable for everyone. Generally, the patient’s age is between 18 and 50 years old, and the degree is stable for at least 2 years or more. In addition, the operation also needs to judge whether the operation can be performed based on the patient’s corneal thickness, pupil diameter and general condition.
although the current myopia surgery has been very safe and long-term, many myopia friends will still have a series of worries and questions before the surgery: can myopia surgery really be done? Can myopic operation rebound? Can myopia operation get cataract?
question 1: you see, it’s nice that even ophthalmologists wear glasses. Why don’t they do it themselves?
answer: there are certain risks in any operation, and myopia surgery is no exception. In China, it has been 20 years since the first myopia surgery was carried out. Both technical upgrading and clinical research show that myopia surgery is safe and effective. However, myopia surgery is not suitable for everyone. Generally, the patient’s age is between 18 and 50 years old, and the degree is stable for at least 2 years or more. In addition, the operation also needs to judge whether the operation can be performed based on the patient’s corneal thickness, pupil diameter and general condition. Some ophthalmologists did not do myopia surgery, partly because of inappropriate physical conditions, on the other hand, because they have been engaged in close work for a long time, they need to retain a certain degree of myopia.
question 2: the degree is too high to do myopia surgery. It not only has poor effect, but also does great harm to the eyes?
answer: when there is only laser surgery, high myopia will indeed be “rejected”. Nowadays, the wide application of ICL lens implantation makes it easy to correct myopia in patients with high myopia. ICL lens implantation can correct myopia by implanting a customized intraocular lens into the eye to change the diopter of both eyes. The operation does not damage or change the eye structure, and the safety factor is high. Question 3 of
: laser surgery thins the cornea, and keratoconus may appear in the future. When you get old, there will be more problems, cataract, glaucoma, etc., and you may be blind?
answer: laser surgery has strict requirements on corneal thickness. All operations are carried out within the specified range. If the preoperative evaluation is correct, the probability of severe complications such as keratoconus is very small. Cataract, glaucoma and other eye diseases have nothing to do with myopia surgery. Take cataract for example. Its occurrence is mainly related to age. Even without myopia surgery, the probability of suffering from cataract is still the same when you get old. In addition, myopia surgery does not affect the development of other ophthalmic surgery, that is, if you suffer from cataract in old age, you can also have surgery. Therefore, to accept myopia surgery is not to bury a time bomb in your eyes, nor is it bound to wait for bad consequences in old age.
question 4: myopia surgery is only a few years, but will it rebound in the future?
answer: a large number of clinical data show that the short-term and long-term effects of myopia surgery are satisfactory. As long as the care is proper, the rebound probability is very small. According to the postoperative follow-up, the number of patients with rebound or refractive instability after operation is less than one thousandth, and most of these rebound are caused by careless eye use after operation. It is important to follow the doctor’s advice and protect the eyes correctly after operation.
if you think that correcting your eyesight can bring a lot of benefits or convenience to your life, and the doctor also determines that you are suitable for the operation through the preoperative eye examination, you don’t have to be nervous and anxious. Just relax and prepare for the operation.
